Sekirei

Sekirei

Minato Sahashi was living a normal life; he had just failed his college entrance exam for a second year in a row, and lived a quiet life in a single's apartment. That is, until the busty Musubi fell from the sky on top of him! She is a Sekirei, one of 108 that are destined to fight each other until only one remains; and he or she will ascend to heaven with his or her chosen one known as an Ashikabi. Minato soon finds himself in the embrace of Musubi, becoming her Ashibaki - but his life will only become more complicated. Musubi isn't the last to claim Minato as her Ashibaki, and what's worse, plenty of other Sekirei and opponents stand in his way!

in both series there are pairs of persons who have to fight each other in a series of fight set up by someone. You'll find more ecchi in sekirei, but the thing about the fights are more or less the same, also there's always kind of a person who is the master and the other who fights. they'll fight togueter against the other fighters to get to win and get to heaven in sekirei and get one wish on fate/stay night.

Cambi Cambi says...

Both series have essentially the exact same concept behind them.  There is a battle of superiority where all the others must be eliminated and the victors are awarded their wishes/heaven.  In both, a master character is teamed up with a fighter character and together they must overcome the rest.  Both series have an innocent yet very noble-minded male lead that is obsessed with protecting his female fighter(s) often ignoring the danger to his own life.  Sekirei is more lighthearted, humorous, and ecchi, while Fate/stay night is more tragic and serious, but anyone who liked one will like the other.

Mirai Nikki TV

Mirai Nikki TV

Yuki is a disaffected middle school boy who has no dreams or goals in life; in fact, the only thing he has is his diary. Writing down everything he observes and documenting every thought, the young boy uses it as an outlet for his imagination. One morning, however, Yuki wakes up to find his cell phone filled with diary entries for the next ninety days. Thinking nothing of it, he continues his morning until he begins to realize that everything on his phone is rapidly coming to pass, and it isn't just mere coincidence. Now, Yuki suddenly finds himself thrust into a survival game against other future diary owners to become the new Lord of Time.

Both of these shows share similar plot elements. Both of them revolve around contests of survival, and the methods the characters use to survive (Servants in Fate/Stay Night and Future Diaries in Mirai Nikki) vary upon each contestant's personality and ambitions. At the end of these games the winner receives a great reward. The main protagonists of both these series are also similar in the fact that at first they are afraid to part take in the dangerous games, but as the shows progress the main characters become more adjusted to the rules of each game. Another similarity between them is that the main heroines of both shows are love interests to the main character and motivate their actions throughout the series. The reason why if you liked one of these you'd like the other is that they both take different approaches to the high stakes game genre. Fate/Stay Night takes a more lighthearted approach focusing on themes like loyalty and having a romance that is that is two-sided. Mirai Nikki on the other hand takes a darker approach to the high stakes game genre focusing on themes such as solitude (most of the main characters are loners) and having a one-sided romance between the main characters. The reason why if you liked one you'd like the other is that they have similar plots and are a part of the same genre, but the tone of these shows greatly differ and as such they offer different takes on the elements they have in common like romance, and survival.

Idiotchan Idiotchan says...

They both have really useless main characters and they are both about survival games and so...

I guess I agree with NinTeddie64.

Lolq Lolq says...

It's pretty much the same story background. There are some people, they are special, chosen and they fight in some kind of tournament for a big prize. I didn't like the Fate/stay night but Mirai Nikki is pretty enjoyable.

Black Lagoon

Black Lagoon

Rokuro Okajima is a small-time salaryman who is carrying documents for his company, when the ship he's traveling on is attacked by pirates. Kidnapped, he discovers to his dismay that his employers' main concern is to ensure the documents don't get into the wrong hands, even if it means sending the carrier to the bottom of the sea. Now, with his former life ruined and his kidnappers seeming comparatively friendly, "Rock" decides to join their merry band of mercenaries, and sets out with a new career to the shadier corners of the South China Sea.

Firestorm Firestorm says...

This recommendation may seem strange for some people as the story, art and such are all very different between Black Lagoon and FSN. This recommendation is for the person that likes strong female characters (more so in Black Lagoon) and some action mixed in. I just think if you liked one, you'd like the other.

eaper eaper says...

Each of these series contain a strong female character that handles most of the violence that is present in each of them, and a main male character that is more or less pushed into an entirely new world that is marked with violence and death. Also, the main male attempts to act as somewhat of a moral conscience in each of the stories at some point.

Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora

Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora

Average, boring, and nothing special; this is how Shiratori Kuu feels about herself and her life as a high school student in Academia. On what begins as any other day, Kuu's life is spun upside down when a new student transfers to her class. As soon as she sees his face, she is astonished, for this is no ordinary boy – he looks just like the prince she has dreamt of for so long! He extends a hand to her and repeats the words she has somehow heard before, "Lets go... Together." But it is never that easy, is it? A world that seemed so dull is now torn apart by a whirlwind of love and hate, and the conflict that plagues all those involved.

Although Fate/stay Night and Kyoshiro belong to different genres you'll see lots of similar elements in both like "mana" used to replenish their "swords", the existence of characters who would fight for the leads, love stories (although a more cheesy one in Kyoshiro) and of course the bittersweet endings.

wolfangel87 wolfangel87 says...

Fate/stay Night and Kyoshiro have similar themes and characters that fight in pairs to protect each other.  They need to use mana to replenish their 'weapons.'  The endings are also kind of similar in a way.

Chrono Crusade

Chrono Crusade

It is the early 1920s, and New York City has a problem of evil proportions – demons. With devil worshipping on the rise, foul spirits and monsters have begun to surface, causing fear and panic in their wake. Combating this threat is the Magdalene Order – a group of religious officials charged with exorcising the evil that is spreading throughout the city. Rosette Christopher is a young nun who takes on missions alongside her contracted partner – a young demon named Chrono. Now it is up to this unlikely pair to wield God’s power – and plenty of holy bullets – to destroy the menace in front of them and confront the demons of their past.

oldfakts oldfakts says...

In the beginning, both Chrono Crusade and Fate/stay night seem to be simple, but develop due to a massive yet unexpected turn of events and emotions. Also, they are both based around the Christian religion (though Fate/stay night is minimal in this regard and focuses only on the Holy Grail).

freakzilla freakzilla says...

While Fate/Stay Night might be a bit more active and modern than Chrono Crusade, both of their plots run deeper than expected at first. When things gain a darker atmosphere, the characters and their actions start reminding you of each other more and more.
